Proposal flags for Mérida


Mérida proposal standard 1
by Juan Manuel Gabino Villascán, January 11, 2005.
From Luis Espejo y Valdelomar, El auténtico Escudo de Armas de la muy Noble y Muy Leal ciudad de Mérida de Yucatán

"Let's play with different variants to order, as better as possible, a new standard for the municipality, which could be employed, from now on, by the Council of the "Muy Noble y Muy Leal Ciudad de Mérida de Yucatán". The shortest way to make such a standard, would be by depicting exactly the whole City's coat of arms within a plain-white square field as accustomed to municipal standards or pennants. Such a standard is, as general usage, fimbriated either in gold or any of the other colors of the arms".

Mérida proposal standard 2
by Juan Manuel Gabino Villascán, January 11, 2005.
From Luis Espejo y Valdelomar, El auténtico Escudo de Armas de la muy Noble y Muy Leal ciudad de Mérida de Yucatán

"Another variant, would simply be, using a field divided into to equal vertical stripes, the one near the hoist in green charged with the fortress, and the second one in green charged, in turn, with the golden lion rampant, near the lower edge and centered the badge. The standard would be also fimbriated in gold."

Mérida proposal standard 3
by Juan Manuel Gabino Villascán, January 11, 2005.
From Luis Espejo y Valdelomar, El auténtico Escudo de Armas de la muy Noble y Muy Leal ciudad de Mérida de Yucatán

"A third possible version, would be with a field party per pale after the coat of arms, with fortress and lion, and a bordered in gold bearing the badge in capital black letters. The whole also fimbriated in blue.
Let's hope these proposals be useful, in any moment, in order to the Meridan Council fly again the municipality standard in official events, as the Yucatán state government currently does with the flag of the state bearing the Yucatán coat of arms".
